Homemade Granola Parfaits Recipe

The Homesteading Hippy

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup double cream Greek or Bulgarian yoghurt
  • 2/3 cup granola
  • 1/3 cup strawberries
  • 2 teaspoons unsalted nuts chopped
  • fresh fruit
  • seeds
  • 4 teaspoons honey
  • 2 edible flowers dandelion petals, viola, etc.

Instructions
 

  • Start with a layer of fruit because you want the last taste to be something special. For these I used some of the summer crop of strawberries that had chopped and frozen. I defrosted those I needed for just 30 seconds.

  • Add a layer of double cream Greek yoghurt, or whichever yoghurt takes your fancy, and drizzle in a little honey or maple syrup.
  • Add a layer of granola .

  • Next comes another layer of yoghurt, drizzled with some honey.
  • Add a second layer of fruit.
  • Then add a granola layer.
  • End with a layer of yoghurt.
  • Decorate with a sprinkle of Paleo mix as I did here – it has flaxseed, sesame seed, almonds and coconut shreds – or use any nuts or seeds you choose.
    the topping
  • Finish up with some choice pieces of fruit. I used frozen blueberries here, but the choice is up to you.
  • The final garnish for contrast was provided by some dandelion petals, because at the end of summer that’s all I had in the garden that was flowering. Violas or dianthus would look pretty.
